State broadcaster to shame corrupt cadres

State broadcaster China Central Television will air a four-episode special from Monday as part of a stepped-up campaign against corruption.

The program, which is backed by China’s anti-corruption watchdog, will expose the lavish lifestyles of certain cadres, highlighting 30 of the biggest graft cases, Apple Daily reported Monday.

Nearly 100 people were interviewed for the show, including whistleblowers, luxury club waiters, undercover reporters and anti-corruption officials.

Former Guangzhou party secretary Wang Qingliang and a former deputy governor of Anhui province, both accused of corruption, will be featured extensively on the program, the report said.

Li Tuo, a professor in the Chinese Academy of Governance, said the move underlines the Communist Party’s policy of “zero tolerance” and “always on” approach to corruption.
